What Are Dentures?
Dentures are removable dental restorations used to replace missing teeth. They are made from a gum-colored acrylic base and ceramic prosthetic teeth. Each denture is customized to the wearer's smile and is held in place by suction, denture adhesive, or clasps that fit around the remaining natural teeth. They can also be fixed to dental implants for added stability.
Our practice offers both full and partial dentures depending on your needs. Partial dentures replace multiple missing teeth when you still have some healthy teeth remaining. Full dentures replace all of your teeth and are used when you've lost an entire arch.
Our Custom Denture Process
Our dentists are committed to helping you find the right restoration option for your smile. We'll take the time to discuss your needs and answer your questions so that you can make a confident decision about your dentures. You can trust us to deliver quality dentures and do all we can to make the process a positive experience for you.
When you come to our office to receive dentures, here's what you can expect:
- Our dentists will evaluate your smile to determine whether dentures are needed. We'll examine your overall oral health and any remaining teeth you may have, then discuss your denture options. We'll also talk with you about whether any teeth need extracting due to poor health or to make room for a full denture.
- Once you've decided on your denture type, we'll take impressions of your smile to ensure the dentures are precise and fits comfortably.
- As the dental impression proceeds to the lab, you'll go home with temporary dentures, which you'll wear until your custom dentures are ready.
- During the final appointment, the dentist will fit in the partial or full denture. We'll take the time to make any last adjustments to deliver a comfortable and natural fit.
Our Toronto Denture Options
If you're considering dentures for the first time, you may be wondering which type of denture is the right one for you. The answer depends on many factors, including age and how many of your natural teeth are still in place. Our team will examine your oral health and help you make the best choice for your unique needs.
Partial dentures are a great option if you're looking for a restoration that accommodates your remaining healthy teeth. They can fill gaps left by missing teeth and prevent neighboring teeth from drifting out of alignment. Full dentures can be used when all natural teeth have been lost or extracted.
If you have several healthy teeth remaining, you will likely choose partial dentures, but you may be uncertain if you only have one or two teeth in an arch. Depending on the health and placement of these teeth, the dentist may recommend using them as anchors for a partial denture. However, if they're weak, loose, or poorly positioned, it may be more beneficial to extract them for a full denture instead. Our dentist will answer all your questions and take the time to educate you on your options so that you can choose with confidence.
How Long Will It Take to Get Used to My New Dentures?
It may take up to a couple of weeks or even months to completely adjust to your new dentures, but you will get confident and comfortable with time. It's normal to experience increased saliva or a slight lisp as your mouth and tongue become used to the dentures. Once you've fully adjusted, however, you'll often forget you're wearing dentures at all.
Are Dentures and Implants the Same Thing?
Dentures and implants are separate restorations. Implants are titanium posts permanently fixed in your jawbone, while dentures are the tooth-shaped dental prosthetics. You can make dentures more secure by attaching them to dental implants.
